Join Janna Waldinger for a virtual presentation: The gift of photography in capturing history and personal experiences. Janna is a third-generation photographer and co-owner with Lowell Downey of Art & Clarity fine photography based in Napa since 1994.

“I had the good fortune to work side by side with my father at a very young age learning the art and craft of photography. In elementary school I started with a Kodak Instamatic for my personal documenting of friends and parties. In middle school I graduated to a double lens format camera, while working with my father who utilized a Hasselblad medium format and large format Toyo-View 4×5 camera.”

Fundamentally, powerful photography is created by working with the science of light, composition, and perspective. The summer of 1999 Janna transitioned to the professional digital format, which has opened massive creative options as well as the advantage of immediate feedback for the images captured. Janna will discuss and share images followed by Q and A.

Janna and Lowell also teach photography and take folks on excursions to learn “The Art of Seeing” and how to shoot like a pro! Go to www.ArtClarity.com to learn more about their creative services.
